Tokyo DisneySea parkgoers will have more ground to cover in the not-so-distant future. The park announced Thursday that its largest expansion ever is in the works.
The theme park currently has seven themed ports where visitors can find attractions inspired by beloved Disney movies such as "Toy Story," "The Little Mermaid," and more. Come 2022, the list will grow; parkgoers will be able to explore the kingdom or Arendelle from "Frozen," the forest where Rapunzel lived in "Tangled," and Neverland from "Peter Pan." Each area will include a new restaurant and new attractions. A luxury hotel will also open in the magical springs-themed port with two restaurants and a merchandise shop.
Not surprisingly, the huge expansion comes with a hefty price tag. Adding the port will cost $2.3 billion, according to Variety. However, Oriental Land, the company that operates the park, will reportedly bring in an extra $460 million per year once the port is up and running.Between the seven ports that DisneySea already boasts and the eighth one that's coming, park visitors will have some serious exploring to do.
